Jay Soriano, Photographer. A specialist in headshots, I work with you to get a shot you love, guaranteed. Recently featured by The Huffington Post, Chicago Tribune and the Las Vegas Review Journal.

Brenda Yahm – My preferred makeup artist, this type of look is a flat, shadowless look that makeup artists love.

Taylor’s Headshot: Ring lighting is popular in beauty and fashion for its even lighting that minimizes flaws, accentuates makeup and brings out eyes with the “ring” catch light.

From Claire Tau’s Google Review, “I am fairly camera shy, but Jay helped me feel comfortable and confident during the shoot, and the headshots he took look amazing!”

DJ EASE – 2x DMC Champion

A Modern Take on the Professional Headshot: A Pure white background is Apple-esque in its resemblance, with a modern, yet simple look. This no-frills approach is perfect for the person who wants a photo that looks professional, yet friendly. Perhaps capturing the spirit of, “I may be the CEO, but you can still grab a drink with me.”

The Sweet Science

Headshot of Keelin – Trendy, High Contrast Look

Dramatic Lighting for Any Situation: Lighting with strobes can cut off ambient light, creating a black background in nearly any situation. In this particular setup, 2 strobes are used unfiltered for a more dramatic look.

Concerts: Babyface

Even outdoors, shaping light is very important as direct sunlight can be harsh, especially in Las Vegas. For this portrait, a reflector was used to bounce light back on to the subjects.

Actor’s Headshots – With actors, I prefer a traditional lighting setup with a neutral background. Throughout the shoot I work to bring out your best self, and headshots for both commercial and theatrical purposes.

Jay Soriano, Photographer. “Rembrandt Lighting” is a classic setup named after a famous painter from the 1600’s. Still popular today, this particular variation is inspired by a couple of my favorite headshots of Steve Jobs and Tim Cook on the cover of TIME Magazine.

About Jay Soriano : Las Vegas Portrait and Headshot Photographer

A famous photographer once said, “Your first 10,000 photos are your worst.” I’d even go on to say that your last 10,000 photos are your worst. I’ll never tell you I’m the best. Photography is an art where it takes a day to learn and a lifetime to master. Through my entrepreneurial work I’ve been lucky enough to be featured by ABC, Under30CEO, Las Vegas Review Journal and various other publications. And now, I hope to make the same waves in photography.

A picture says a thousand words, so checkout my portfolio and if you like what you see send me an email and let’s talk about what you have in mind. I want to make sure we’re a good fit, if I’m not the photographer for you I’d be happy to refer you to someone else.

My Approach to Portraits and Headshots

I’ve always liked the phrase “Don’t be better, be different.” There’s a thousand photographers in Las Vegas, if you look through my photos what I think differentiates myself is my unique ability to use off-camera lighting and post processing to give you a photo that’s unique. I’m not a factory, I take my time with each client and I’ll work with you to get a portrait that you love.


On-location photographer with portable background and lighting, I can shoot from the comfort of your home or office, or you can come to my home studio located in Mountain’s Edge (off of Buffalo and Mountain’s Edge Parkway). If you have any questions feel free to contact me at jonathanjsoriano@gmail.com

I offer honest, affordable and transparent pricing. Many other photographers typically charge a “session fee,” than separately for the actual images you want to purchase. I include un-watermarked, full resolution photos with a release for web and prints. I simply reserve the right to use the photos for marketing purposes (portfolio, social media, blogging, etc.).


Payment is due at the time of the shoot and via cash or card.

Turnaround Time
